Win a stargazing break to Northumberland Dark Sky Park

Go Stargazing has teamed up with The Redesdale Arms to offer a fantastic weekend away in Northumberland!

Located at the heart of the Northumberland International Dark Sky Park The Redesdale Arms is the perfect place to explore star-filled skies. Being away from light pollution during new moon means the skies are at their very darkest with the Milky Way easily visible arching overhead and thousands of stars to be seen with the naked eye alone. A truly stunning sight!

You’ll be spending the weekend with experienced astronomers who will take you on a tour of the constellations and locate fascinating deep space objects to observe using large aperture telescopes. There’ll be various astronomical-themed activities and presentations too…

This event takes place on Friday 6th April 2018 and Saturday 7th April 2018 with the prize including overnight bed and breakfast both of these nights for up to two people sharing one twin or one double room, a prize in total worth £240.00! All rooms are en-suite with spectacular views over the Rede Valley. You can expect the very warmest of welcomes from proprietor Carrol and her team along with great food and friendly company amongst fellow stargazers.


You can also attend this weekend stargazing event by booking via The Redesdale Arms directly. Both evenings are also open to the public at a cost of £10.00 per person for stargazing only. For more details and bookings contact The Redesdale Arms on 01830 520668.
